|Re: Honda EM500 Generator by Carl|
Sounds like a fuel starvation problem to me. Check if the vent cap is clear on the fuel tank (causes vapour lock), and also that fuel is actually getting through to the jets in the carburettor- ie fuel filters, tap, hoses and jets are clear). You could try (carefully) spraying some Aerostart(ie ether) in the air cleaner when it starts; if the engine then runs for longer then it's probably a fuel supply/mixture problem. Also check that your air cleaner is clean, and remove the muffler and check the exhaust passages on the muffler and engine: there should be a fine wire mesh screen in the muffler, this can get clogged with soot, strangling the engine. Try blowing through the muffler. You could also try running the engine without muffler or air cleaner to test for the above problems.
Check back and let us know what you find.
